Do you know someone who seems to ‘have it all’ but is lonely or unfulfilled? Do you know someone who is in a low-paying industry but feels valued or has workplace friendships that make them excited to go to work each day? Maybe you know someone who is well-paid, highly valued, deeply fulfilled and has work-life balance… A rare breed!

In this Gallup study you’ll see that data is still in need of analysis. And how we think about the research informs our questions and our answers – about all things, including happiness.

Gallup asks, “Who are the happiest people in the world?”

If a traditional approach is taken, as the United Nations did, the metrics center around how you see your life on a scale of 1-10. Things like income, employment, and opportunity. But what if you take a different approach, as Gallup did? They didn’t use a scale but asked 10 specific questions that illicit how someone is living their life, a more emotional well-being approach.

Interesting study to be sure. For me, the most interesting aspect to consider is: how well do you know yourself? How do YOU measure your own happiness?
